As cool ski places go, here at travelphant we think we’ve found a winner called Whitepod Alpine Ski Resort. The camp will open on the 20th of December 2011 and we can’t wait to check it out. Until then here are some pictures and videos of the resort which is nestled in the charming village of Les Cerniers. It’s surrounded by a blanket of glistening white snow and panoramic mountain views, Whitepod offers an unforgettable experience in the heart of the Swiss Alps. Whitepod is a unique concept designed to be in harmony with the surrounding environment whilst still benefitting from a luxurious and comfortable habitat.
- 7km of ski slopes with private ski lifts
- The Alpage de Chindonne, an authentic mountain lodge, which can accommodate up to 80 guests in rooms of dormitories, and its traditional Swiss restaurant
- The Whitepod camp, 15 geodesic-dome pods surrounding a central chalet
- The Chalet des Cerniers, a traditional wooden chalet which acts as base-camp for the whole resort, and offers an inventive and refined cuisine in its new restaurant
The Whitepod resort is the ultimate mountain escape for nature lovers and adventure seekers alike!
A pod is a geodesic structure anchored on wooden platforms, and naturally isolated from the cold and the snow – all pods are equipped with wood-burning stoves, organic luxury bedding and full services bathrooms. At the center of the 15 pods, stands a charming early 1800s wooden chalet where guests meet for breakfast in the morning or gather in the evening around its central fireplace for evening drinks and socializing.
